Every year, Tapestry is pleased to send the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) detailed and comprehensive submissions to be considered as “Best in Wellness” in North America. The Wellness team takes the lead preparing their community’s submission and providing materials that substantiate all we do to create an active aging environment for our valued residents.
This year, we were thrilled that three of our communities were selected among the Top 25 “Best in Wellness” senior living communities in North America. Earning the coveted ICAA NuStep Beacon Award are: Tapestry at Victoria Harbour (Victoria, BC), Tapestry at Arbutus Walk (Vancouver) and Tapestry at Village Gate West (Toronto).
“We are particularly proud that Tapestry’s communities were the only ones in Canada to be recognized with a Beacon Award,” says Adena Waffle, Senior Vice President.
Tapestry at Wesbrook Village (Vancouver), which was the first Tapestry community to earn a Beacon Award and has won for the last three years, just missed placing in the Top 25 with its sister communities. Only one tenth of a point separated the community from the 25th place winner.
The ICAA NuStep Beacon Award honours senior living communities, community centres and Chief Executive Officers whose achievements, innovations, directions or commitments stand out as extraordinary guiding lights for all organizations and individuals in the active aging industry. The award acknowledges those organizations which prioritize all 7 Dimensions of Wellness and create relevant and meaningful opportunities to inspire participants to improve the quality of their life.
“We are proud that all of our communities structure their wellness culture to have a significant and positive impact on our residents’ health and quality of life,” adds Adena. “At Tapestry, wellness means more than delivering excellent programming. It is about residents and employees embracing their passions to live rich, meaningful and purposeful lives.”
